Wild women gathering - the living Goddess 19th-26th September 2020

At this time of great transformation, I warmly invite you to reach out for the ancient wisdom within your own being, the deep inner knowing that your soul has chosen to be on Earth for this transition. Together we will enter a process of attuning to the Earth and the living Goddess, to activate each person`s soul plan for this life.

We will cast a sacred circle, moving through the ages to remember our strength and growing deep roots. Together we will release, forgive and let go what is holding us back, through movement, meditation, tuning into nature, sharing, art and ceremony. I will support you to step into your vision of a deep and meaningful life. We will be united in sisterhood, bringing forth love, understanding, community and the deep knowing of a better world.

Once home to priestesses, this island`s mystical places and the waters of the Adriatic sea will support our process of transformation. We will stay in tents in the middle of nature, fall asleep to the sounds of nature and enjoy delicious vegetarian food.
Join us to connect to your authentic self and unleash your wild, wise inner woman!

Retreat Structure

The Venue
Gea Viva is an eco retreat camp in a tranquil olive grove, 15 minutes’ walk from the sea and the harbour village Milna on the beautiful Croatian island Brač. Giving people the opportunity to experience living in harmony with nature, it offers retreats, events and seminars around the themes of ecological construction, permaculture, geomancy, healthy living, arts and crafts. Being completely off-grid, Its design is based on permaculture principles featuring a stone circle, a beautiful pavilion which serves as a teaching space, a permaculture garden, compost toilets, solar showers, a geodesic dome, a straw bale eco cabin, a giant mosaic dragon and a cosy Summer kitchen.

Sabine is a really good host, we had great discussions about everything, she is really a wonderful woman, full of spirit and talent. The camp has a really good way of thinking, in harmony with nature and soul. It is perfect to relax and have a break from the stressful city life. The beach is only at 20 mins walk from the camp, really peaceful. You have another one a bit more far away (40 min), really beautiful. The food was excellent: fresh fish, fruits and vegetables, good coffee, awesome! We really appreciated our stay! Thanks again Sabine!
